Step 5: Purchase Textbooks and Materials
Students enrolling in Part-time and Online Education courses may be required to purchase textbooks and materials via the RRC Polytech Campus Store. Student booklists will be available approximately three weeks prior to scheduled course start dates. Please ensure materials are purchased in advance, to be available for the start date.

Once completed, email the PDF form or print and mail it. Contact information can be found on the form.
We encourage you to register online when possible. A paper registration form may take longer to process, and could affect your place on a waitlist.
Additionally, you will not be able to electronically upload required documents, check the submission status of your registration, or update your personal information (email or home address, phone number, etc.) outside of regular College business hours.
Computers are available for use at RRC Polytech’s Notre Dame Campus Student Service Centre, RRC Polytech’s libraries, public libraries and high schools.
Paper registration is not available for Youth Camps.
